Hadoop for Predictive Analytics - A Data Scientist's Secret Weapon Against Malware Threats

Sungwook Yoon View Bio


The IT environment is rapidly changing: new technology stacks emerge every year that serves billions of people worldwide. However, many of these new technologies have not been thoroughly tested, and as a result, malware writers have targeted them. How can you quickly and effectively distinguish a network intrusion attempt from an expected and authorized event? A great approach for getting in front of those attacks involves the use of big data technologies for predictive analytics. By analyzing all your network event data with Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark, you can build models that identify normal behavior as well.
